About Desi Vega's
Voted Best New Restaurants "Class of 13" by New Orleans Magazine. Desi Vega is the restaurateur of Desi Vega's Steakhouse and Mr. John's Steakhouse. Both restaurants are consistently outstanding and locals' favorite place to "see and be seen". Desi grew up in the restaurant business and was groomed by Ella Brennan at Commander's Palace, Ruth Fertel of Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and Emeril Lagasse. His attention to detail and commitment to excellence makes for a truly memorable dining experience. Our USDA Prime steaks are carefully selected, hand-cut and aged for tenderness, then seared to perfection and served on a sizzling plate. The Who Dat Shrimp appetizer and Andouille-crawfish Mac & Cheese are favorite dishes of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans players. We hope you'll visit to see for yourself!

Desi Vega's Ratings and Reviews
This was our first time at Desi Vegas. I heard nothing but awesome reviews about this place so I decided to reserve a night to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Everything was great except where we were seated. would have liked a more secluded personal space. The food was great and the service was exceptional. We appreciated the complimentary meatball and sweet treat.
Steak Great & tender. Very noisy people who were obviously drinking excessively. Hard to hear conversation. Again steak very tender. Crime brûlée very good, but chocolate lava cake was room temp & heavy. The red velvet dessert boy good. Shrimp who dat very good according to those who ate it
Again steak tender &a delicious
We went for our anniversary. The only complaint we had was the table was right up against the bar. My husband was having servers walk behind him bumping his chair throughout the meal. We asked to move tables, but the manager would not allow us. He told servers not to walk behind him, but not all were told and it continued. Again this was the only complaint. Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious.
